    There are some old posts about Dan Priban's trips across various continents in a Trabant. I didn't see anyone post where to get them. The official store only seems to only ship to Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, and Germany. I love an epic road trip so I sought out where to get these movies.

    The first trip was from Prague to Uzbekistan and back and has no English subtitles. It's is available on DVD from czeckmovie.com as are several others mentioned below.

    The second trip was down the continent of Africa and is available with English subtitles and narration and seems to be the most widely available. I haven't found it on DVD but Amazon Prime has it for rent or purchase. I don't subscribe to Amazon Prime and I don't think they allow you to download your purchases so I found it for download from Journeyman.

    Africa - Journeyman

    This movie is only an hour long and while I enjoy it, I find it too short to cover the entirety of Africa with much depth.

    The third movie is through South America. The fourth movie is across Australia and up to Bangkok. Both are feature length and available with English subtitles (no English narration). I purchased these on DVD from czechmovie.com.

    Soth America - Czech Movie

    Australia - Czech Movie

    Both of these were also made into a series but were not subtitled in English. I feel like any of these trips would benefit from the extra time of a series and wish these got subtitled. The series are also available from czechmovie.com

    He has successfully crowd funded the next trip through India. I don't know when that might be released but I hope there are subtitles. :)

    I finally got my copy of Trabant: There and Back Again and have watched it a couple of times. This one, as the name implies, completes their trip around the world and covers some of the same ground as their first trip. Production quality seemed to be up a bit. Especially videography. There are a couple new members of the group but I don't feel you get to know them much. There is a little more focus on car problems and the countries they go through. The end feels a bit rushed, I think because they had been there 10 years ago when they started these trips.

    Overall, I love the series. I'm partial to epic road trip adventures, the little bit of different culture and perspective you get from foreign films, and of course the Trabants. They are a fun watch and I'll continue to rewatch the whole series.

    There is a teaser at the end about a new car. So there may be more adventures to come if even without Trabant content.
